The Association has clarified the selection criteria for the World Youth Baseball Championship (U-18 Baseball World Cup) to be held in Taiwan this year.
In a phone call with this magazine, the Korea Baseball Softball Association said, “The selection criteria for the youth team are not based on the month, but the year of birth. In other words, the number of people who can be selected for the youth team this year is 2005 or less.” have been informed메이저사이트
As a result, players with paid experience or a gap of more than one year cannot participate in this national team. As a result, those born in 2004, such as Masan Yongma High School Jang Hyeon-seok, Busan High School Won Sang-hyun, and Jangchung High School Cho Dong-wook, will not be automatically included in the preliminary entry.
In the meantime, paying attention to the fact that the world competition is held between August and September, I posted an opinion that it was possible for those born in October to December 2004 to participate, but as a result, this also turned out to be untrue. Those born in January or February 2005 can be selected for entry even if they have paid experience. In addition, when selecting high school freshmen, up to February 2008 can be selected.
As a result, the association and national team coach Lee Young-bok faced the task of forming an entry with various options.
In the World Youth Baseball Championship, called the U-18 Baseball World Cup, the national team has won one runner-up, one bronze medal, and one fourth place in the last three competitions, and the 2008 Canadian tournament remains the latest championship.
